Deo Gratias Gala at St. Joseph's Abbey

Saint Joseph Seminary College, the largest seminary college in the country, will host its annual fundraising gala, Deo Gratias, Latin for “Thanks be to God,” on Saturday, Oct. 27. The event takes place on the beautiful grounds of Saint Joseph Abbey, located at 75376 River Road, in Covington, La. Tickets may be purchased at www.sjasc.edu.

The evening begins at 6 p.m. with vespers in the Abbey Church with the Benedictine monks and the Schola Cantorum. The outdoor gala begins at 7 p.m. Food will be prepared by award-winning Chef John Folse and desserts will be provided by Zoë's Bakery. Acquistapace’s Covington Supermarket will provide fine wines and cheeses.

Guests can participate in a silent auction featuring a variety of items, including a football signed by the entire 2017 New Orleans Saints team and its owner, the late Tom Benson. This year’s featured auction artwork is “Bond of St. Benedict” by Marilyn Rougelot-Geddes. The oil painting depicts a historic moment in the life of the Abbey’s Benedictine community, the 2001 election of Abbot Justin Brown, O.S.B., as the fifth Abbot of Saint Joseph Abbey. Marilyn’s painting illustrates that day in November as the monks processed to their Chapter Room to vote.

Rougelot-Geddes is a long celebrated and highly respected artist of the greater New Orleans area. Well before 1990, and after becoming a Benedictine Oblate of the Abbey, she has enjoyed being a part of the spiritual life of this community. Her artworks are visible in homes across the area and nationwide. Though many of her paintings are portraits, she has also illustrated books and painted murals in large homes as well as for several highly trafficked public venues.

Other auction items at Deo Gratias include unique religious pieces, jewelry, get-a-ways, and gift certificates. A favorite auction item is always a basket of goods made by members of the monastic community. The Deo Gratias raffle this year will include $500 cash, restaurant packages, and a one-night stay and breakfast at Annadele’s Plantation.

All proceeds from this event benefit the Seminary College, which has seen a surge in enrollment over the last several years. In 2010, just 75 seminarians were studying for the priesthood here. Now, with nearly double the student body, support for the Seminary College has never been more vital. As the student body continues to grow, the support is essential to the continued growth of its academic and formation programs.

Sponsors for Deo Gratias will enjoy a pre-gala reception hosted by Abbot Justin Brown, O.S.B., and Fr. Gregory Boquet, O.S.B., President-Rector of the Seminary College, in the beautiful Monks’ Refectory which features floor to ceiling murals by Dom Gregory de Wit. Sponsors will also enjoy reserved seating at the gala.

Gala tickets are $100 each, and raffle tickets are $25 each. For more information on being a sponsor, or to purchase tickets and raffle tickets, visit www.sjasc.edu, or contact Kathy Nastasi at 985-867-2284 or knastasi@sjasc.edu.

Las Posada: The Journey of the Wise Men

Screen Shot 2018-08-31 at 8.54.25 AM.png

Hear about their journey and why they brought gifts!  Then, follow the Shepherd in search of the Holy Family.

Las Posadas is a Mexican and Spanish tradition, and here at CSMPC it teaches the true meaning of Christmas. Children and adults accompany a Shepherd in his search for the Holy Family. The shepherd shares his story of the importance of finding the Christ Child and what the birth of this Child means for our future.

The shepherd leads the children around the Cypress Springs Mercedarian Prayer Center in search of the Holy Family. Upon reaching the “live” nativity, the children are given a brief lesson i.e. Is There Really A Santa?, Being a Lamb in the Flock, etc.

Appropriate for children of all ages.  No ticket required.  However, we ask you to call the center to reserve your space at 225-752-8480.

The Donut Man

We have booked "The Donut Man" for a concert at St.Ann's at 2pm on Sunday October the 14th. Rob Evans is "The Donut Man" and he puts on a musical presentation for young children based on the theme:
- ' Life is like a Donut -- All of us have a hole in the middle of our heart, and only the love of God can fill that "Donut- Hole" 
Rob as many know has a show on EWTN called "MASSterpiece Donut Shop" and he will be at St.Ann's to perform for the youth and their families. This is an event our youth need Now...... More than Ever !
("The Donut Man" will also be at Our Lady of Divine Providence that same day, Sun Oct the 14th at 7pm.) Each event is 2 hours and our current goal will be to make these Free Events -- with a requested love offering for those attending. We will submit a new event request notice for the time frame of the "Our Lady of Divine Providence" event as well. For the moment, since this is our first communication to CCR, let me note that we will update this communication soon with a Facebook page entitled "Louisiana Donut Man" to direct people to more information about these events. We hope to have that FB page created within a week. 
Knights of Columbus Council #9347 (from OLDP) is sponsoring these events, but my husband John has asked that I be the contact person when the time is appropriate for speaking more about this - and i would be glad to speak for the event on the radio. That said, we will also reach out to Rob Evans to see when a good time for him to speak about this on your station too ! Thank you, Maria Eitmann
